Teacher Lower School Teacher PreK-5th grade: 2020-2021
Lower School teachers (PreK-5) work in self-contained classrooms of typically 20 students each. Lower School teachers focus on three core academic areas: mathematics, language arts, and social studies. Physical education, Spanish language, science, music, art, library, and computer technology are taught by specialists. Collaboration and communication between homeroom and specialist teachers is a high value in the Lower School.
We are seeking an educator who is passionate about teaching. The ideal candidate will have 3-5 years of elementary classroom experience, including a strong background in early literacy and mathematics instruction, and experience and facility with technology integration, curriculum development, and working collaboratively with a team. The successful candidate will possess excellent communication skills with parents and colleagues, add strength to the school community, and show evidence of continuing professional development. A Master’s degree in elementary education or a related field and a teaching credential is preferred. Experience with Investigations (or a similar conceptual math curriculum), Lucy Calkins Writer’s Workshop, and Responsive Classroom is a plus.
